“Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd
You know the song…do you understand the lyrics?
“So you think you can tell, Heaven from Hell…blue skies from pain?
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail…a smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?”
Haunting lyrics, for sure! Lyrics that paint a picture of absence…people going through life with detached feelings…coping with their world by withdrawing from life, physically or emotionally. Being absent from their own life! Perhaps even soothing their poor lost souls by saturating themselves with drugs and alcohol. Is your spirit crying?
Man traded obedience for free will, many years ago, in the Garden of Eden as detailed in Genesis, the first book in the Bible. How are you using your free will to cope? Can you tell Heaven from Hell?
“How I wish you were here!
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl. year after year.
Running over the same old ground, what have we found?
The same old fears…wish you were here!”
If you find yourself lost and swimming round and round in that fish bowl, maybe fearing the unkown, remember, you have free will! You can move to a better place….I really wish you were here, with me, and you can make that happen! Use your free will to join with the single most powerful force that will bring order to your world…Join with God! He already knows you , so no introductions needed, he loves you and he is waiting for you. Joining Him is where you will find peace, joy, love, and all the answers for which you have been endlessly searching for.
